Lets talk about how frustrating it is to have big feet. I wear size 11. I've worn size 11 since the 5th grade, and no, I wasn't this tall back then. Finding ANY size 11 shoe is difficult enough, much less finding a cute shoe. Today I was reminded how difficult it actually is.
I went to Off Broadway today with no intention of actually buying any shoes. I wanted out of the house, River was a little stir crazy, and I've been obsessing over shoes online. So I thought, why not?! I went out with the mission of finding a pair of mid-calf black combat boots, and a pair of oxfords with a heel. Or without. Whatever. I chose Off Broadway because my past experience with them was always good. They used to have a wide selection of size 11. Not anymore, my friends! I tried on a 10 in some boots, just to see how tight it was. It was tight. Way tight. I used to be able to fit into a very few pairs of 10, but since having a baby, that doesn't happen anymore. I found one pair of shoes that fit. These were a nice color gray with a cute black tie. Believe it or not, they were a little big on me. They also weren't what I was looking for at all, so back in the box they went.
After my unsucessful shoe excursion, I came home to do more internet searching. Behold! These are the cutest pair of saddle shoes EVER! And I want them. They would look so cute with tights and a dress. Especially the Pretty Polly dashing bow tights. So freaking cute! I guess I'm looking so diligently for these things because I'm in the process of looking for a full time job. I applied for one last night, but more on that if it becomes promising.
